Sessions Arms House Republicans Against Boehner Immigration Push

Matthew Boyle, Breitbart, January 29, 2014

In an unusually aggressive move, top immigration hawk Sen. Jeff Session (R-AL) is moving to preemptively arm House Republicans with anti-amnesty talking points and other materials ahead of a major planning session at the House GOP’s Maryland retreat tomorrow.

Sessions’ office hand-delivered a four-piece packet to House members that includes a “Myth vs. Fact” document on immigration talking points to prepare them to fight back against immigration proposals Speaker John Boehner is expected to push in a closed-door meeting.

The 14-page Myth vs. Fact document, provided exclusively to Breitbart News by Sessions’ staff, breaks down 10 of the major talking points commonly used by amnesty proponents and offers detailed rebuttals.


The packet is unusual because members of the Senate generally do not involve themselves heavily in the internal affairs of the House as a matter of protocol. {snip}
